Wow, these are awesome! I definitely need to check out the Dollar Tree by my house. I love your idea of using growth mindset on them. I created a growth mindset bulletin board for the hall last year, but these would be way more hands on and engaging for students. I can already think of other ways to use these in math, science, and LA. They would be great for math games, science reviews, and character cubes. Thanks for such a great share! :)
How did this work? What did you use to put the faces together?
They turned out great! Instead of at the beginning of the school year, I used them later to help build a positive classroom culture. First I tried to glue the "edges" together, but this was difficult, time consuming and not very durable--it kept falling apart. Second time around I folded the tabs for the edges to the outside and stapled them together. It was so easy to put together, very durable and sturdy, and looks great. I'll post a picture!
